Matt Barnes - Runner of the Month - March 2019-20


Matt BarnesOur Second runner of the month is Matt Barnes (and his knee). This is a recognition of his running achievements but also of the amount that he gives back to the club. The Thursday night sessions he and Fi organise are well planned, challenging but hugely rewarding and regulars are noticing the benefits. Matt (and knee) is very generous with his knowledge and encouragement to others. Alongside this, Matt (& knee) have produced some stunning results in recent months. The knee was able to run 3:18 at the Snowdonia marathon late last year. He’s translated that form into this year running a PB of 63 minutes at the Staverton 10 miler and also taking 45 seconds off his 5 mile PB to set a club record at Linda Franks (in 29:45). Matt (&k) is a bit of a club legend and this award is thorough-knee deserved!
